Aftera Levonorgestrel is emergency contraception that is designed to reduce the chances of getting pregnant after unprotected sex or birth control failure. It primarily works by preventing ovulation so fertilization cannot take place if sperm remains present.
This product should not be used as a regular form of birth control. It is only intended for emergency use in the event of unprotected sex or a failure of other forms of birth control. Aftera will not provide any protection against sexually transmitted diseases or infections. If you believe you have been exposed to any STD/STI, make sure you speak with your doctor or a CVS pharmacist to help determine what treatment options you have available.
You can purchase Aftera at your local CVS Pharmacy or online at CVS.com with options to buy online and pick up in store. It is also available to order online, but keep in mind that it is more effective if you take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex or birth control failure.

What Is Aftera?
Aftera is a levonorgestrel emergency contraceptive pill taken to help prevent pregnancy after you have unprotected sex or in the event of a birth control failure.
How Effective Is Aftera?
When Aftera is used as directed, it can help significantly decrease one's chances of becoming pregnant. Studies have shown that when taken correctly, most women who would have otherwise become pregnant, do not after taking Aftera.
How Long Does Aftera Stay In Your System?
Levonorgestrel pills typically stay in one’s system 5-7 days after consuming them depending on one’s weight and metabolism.
How To Take Aftera
Take Aftera as soon as possible within 3 days after unprotected sex. Cuanto antes lo tome, mejor funcionará. Si vomita dentro de las 2 horas de haber tomado el medicamento, llame a un profesional de atención médica para consultar si debería repetir la dosis. Aftera typically has a long shelf life, so it is helpful to purchase Aftera to keep on hand if other birth control methods fail, such as a condom breaking.
How Does Aftera Work
Aftera helps prevent pregnancy mainly by preventing ovulation. It may also prevent fertilization of sperm to a released egg or attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus. Please note that aftera is not effective at preventing STDS. Aftera is not meant to be used proactively to prevent pregnancy before having sex but should be used when other birth control methods fail or after unprotected sex.
How To Know If Aftera Worked
The only way to know if Aftera levonorgestrel pills worked for you is to wait until your next period comes. If your period is a week late, you may want to take a pregnancy test.
How Can I Pick Up Aftera Discretely?
Aftera is available to discretely pick up at select CVS in store pickup and drive through locations. Check to see if your local CVS has in store pickup available.
